Sound Off! Battle of the Bands at EMP

February 9, 2016

Sound Off! takes place at EMP Museum starting at 8:00pm February 13th, 20th, 27th, and March 5th.


Here at the monorail we are very excited for Sound Off! 2016 at the EMP, the Northwest’s premier under-21 battle of the bands! The competition consists of twelve up-and-coming artists, split into three four-band semifinal battles. The winner of each semifinal will move on to the finals, along with a “Wildcard” winner who will all compete at the finals on March 5th. All shows are all-ages.


As this is SoundOff’s 15th year, there are some notable alumni who have stemmed from winning the competition. In SoundOff’s long run, they have birthed Brite Futures, Schoolyard Heroes, Dyme Def, Kithkin, The Lonely Forest, Nude Pop, Sol, and Tomten among many more. SoundOff is truly a launching pad for the next big thing: we wouldn’t recommend missing it.

Check out the bands featured on SoundOff’s website.
